A little west virginia humor to brighten your day and make you smile!!

Gun Control

Barack Obama, at a recent rural elementary school assembly in
West Virginia,asked the audience for total quiet.

Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands once
every few seconds, holding the audience in total silence.

Then he said into the microphone, 'Children, every time I clap
my hands together, a child in America dies from gun violence.'

Then, little Richard Earl, with a proud West Virginia drawl,
pierced the quiet and said:

'Well, dumbass, stop clapping!'

Five Old Ladies

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers,
a Police Officer sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH.

Says he to himself: "This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!"


So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over.


Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies,
two in the front seat and three in the back...
wide eyed and white as ghosts.

The driver, obviously confused, says to him
"Officer, I don't understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit!
What seems to be the problem?"

"Ma'am," the officer replies, "you weren't speeding, but you should
know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger
to other drivers."

"Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly...
Twenty-two miles an hour!" ...the old woman says a bit proudly.

The Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her
that 22 is the highway number, not the speed limit.

A bit embarrassed, the woman grins and thanks the officer
for pointing out her error.

"But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask...
Is everyone in this car OK?
These women seem awfully shaken, and they haven't
made a peep this whole time," the officer asks.

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer.

We just got off Highway 189."

An e-mail from a fellow West Virginian.......

Quote:
West Virginia boy


A good ole West Virginia boy won a bass boat in a raffle drawing.
He brought it home and his wife looks at him and says,


"What you gonna do with that. There ain't no water deep enough to float
a boat within 100 miles of here."

He says, "I won it and I'm a gonna keep it."

His brother came over to visit several days later. He sees the wife and
asks where his brother is.
She says, "He's out there in his bass boat", pointing to the field
behind the house.

The brother heads out behind the house and sees his brother sitting in
a bass boat with a fishing rod in his hand down in the middle of a big field.

He yells out to him, "What are you doing?"

His brother replies, "I'm fishin. What does it look like I'm a doing."

His brother yells, "It's people like you that give people from ""West
Virginia"" a bad name, makin everybody think we is stupid.

If I could swim, I'd come out there and whip your ass!"

The poem is from an e-mail I received from a friend..........

Quote:
Thought everyone would enjoy this -
compliments of its author, Roger Taylor from Elkins


'Twas the night of the Orange Bowl and throughout the nation
We were the underdogs on every TV and Radio Station
ESPN said we couldn't win, Clemson would destroy us in the end
Said our guys weren't so great, and one didn't know West Virginia was a state

The fans were nestled all snug in the stands
Clapping along with the Mountaineer band
And ma in her jammies and I in my WVU cap
Settled in for the game, a bowl of chips in my lap

When out on the field there arose such a clatter
I turned up the sound to see what was the matter
Touchdown after Touchdown after Touchdown they scored
10 in all for a 70 score

The QB in charge was so lively and quick
I knew in a moment it was Geno Smith
More rapid than eagles his passes they came,
Then he pointed and scrambled and call them by name

Now Austin! Now Bailey! Now Buie and Alston!
On Cook! On Brown! On Milhouse and Irvin!
Tightrope the side lines and reach for that score,
We make history tonight, no one's done it before!

The coach praised his players, the fans stayed for hours,
Dana still wet from his Gatorade shower.
He turned with a jerk, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.

But I heard him exclaim, as he strode out of sight,
"The couches are burning in Mo-town tonight!"

An old West Virginia Hillbilly saying:


You cannot get the water to clear up,
until you get the pigs out of the creek.
